This thread was clearly started by someone who just wants to stir up trouble without us knowing who he/she really is

Exactly! Who is this boxer anyway?

We're wasting time on this when we really should be discussing letterbox adoption!!!

Or maybe we can discuss the impending expansion and collapse of the sun. Five billion years goes by quicker than you think.

A quick glance at their profile is all you need. Only three posts and one find in 6 1/2 years, all on a certain date. This year they were just 9 days late. And I clearly remember each of those other posts. What's funny is, it's been so long since I heard the term "silverback" to the point that I've now been boxing longer than those who were called silverbacks had been boxing when I first heard the term.

Anonymous feedback always degenerates to crass name calling. What we need are clear, codified regulations and a professional, properly trained Police force.

Also, if you look back at their other posts you can see they all took place on April Fool's day.

At the bottom of the clues you can say 'Hide it better than you found it. Please do not let children rehide the box without supervision'.

At the bottom of the clues you could write several pages of good letterboxing practice. Thing is, though, some of us are trying to create unique and challenging clues, some of which don't involve text at all. Some involve graphics, some involve photos, some involve videos, some involve a Haiku. Having to type in page after page of things that every letterboxer should already be doing just buries all this creativity in boilerplate that nobody's ever going to read anyway. It shouldn't be that hard to get finders to rehide the %$^& box properly!

So what say you Turtle Boy?

Turtle Boy? I kind of like that. Makes me feel all sweet and innocent. =)

How about some nice check boxes to make people feel like crap?

Maybe next April....

You obviously don't live in Worcester, MA. Turtle Boy means something a little...different...here.

Oh my gosh! That never even occurred to me, and it's so iconic!

I can't draw it, let alone carve it, but if I could get a carver, Southpaw and I would definitely plant it! ;^)

Maybe we need to slightly change your trailname to "Groan Tortuga"?

I agree. Supposedly, the statue is supposed to portray "innocence, joy, and rebirth." Um, not so much.

board bug or oddity
Board: Suggestion Box

Thread
First, I'm not sure if this is where bugs/oddities should be posted. I'm suggesting something be changed, I guess :)

When I'm on my board ("Maze of Doors Puzzlehunt"), and click "first", (http://www.atlasquest.com/boards/message.html?msgId=1;), I expect to be taken to the first message of that board. Instead I am taken to the first message of "AQ Announcements". When on that board, I click "Last" (http://www.atlasquest.com/boards/message.html?), I am taken to the last message of my board. That also seems to be the behavior on "Letterbox Chatter", but not on "Suggestion Box". I don't remember it working that way in the past, but I could be wrong.

It is very confusing, at least to me. IMHO, "first" and "last" on a board should be w.r.t. to that board or that thread, not the whole system. I see little utility in a link that often goes to the first message from 2004 from any board.

HTH

You're viewing the message off of the board. To go to the board you click "Read Board" and then you can use the first/last buttons on the board

Thanks for your help, but I'm not sure I understand what this means. Of course I'm going to take the fastest path to the message, and the way you get to a message should not affect the behavior IMHO.

If I clicked on "reply" for the message, for example (as I did here), I would expect my reply to be on board/thread (as it appears to be), therefore functions other than "reply" should also work that way, IMHO, but maybe not, I dunno. I mean, I also see a function that says "start new thread". If I am only on the message and not the board, where is the new thread started?

In any case, if I am the only one confused, its not important, so nevermind :)
